Se7en’s Fabulous Fun Post #355 And a GiveAway…

October 10th, 2017 · 4 Comments

It’s a new week… and time for a fabulous fun post…

And… I have a mountain of review books on my desk… so I will definitely be blogging the latest and greatest reads in almost every category that you can think of, between now and the end of the month… Meanwhile, here is…

A GiveAway… that you have to send on…



It is World Post Day… and a while back we received this book in the mail all the way from Istanbul. The book, called Book, is on a journey around the world… and it is way past time for us to post it on.

So in celebration of post day leave a comment and tell us where in the world you are… You have to be quick… this is a 24 hour (from when we publish) turn around give away. We will pop all the names, from instagram and over here, into a hat and pick a winner, hopefully in an exotic place, to send book on.

It is a beautiful book, a piece of art really, all about how the book became a book and how books have changed through time, beautiful poetry, quotes and artwork as you wander through the pages. All written from the perspective of the book… Anyway, the idea is that you leave a comment and tell us where you are and we gather the comments together and pick a winner… the winner will get the book, read it and enjoy it and then send it on it’s way to a new and exotic location. Don’t forget to leave a comment… and tell us where you are!!!

Book of the Week


This book is quirky, suggests mindful missions and kindness adventures… it even inspired a Kindness Club in our house. I love it… I thought it would be a little tame… but you have to step inside this beautifully created and illustrated book. And for all the folk that ask me, “How do you teach your children to be kind?” This is the book… totally not twee, but full of really practical kindness ideas. Suggestions on: How to be the best guest ever; recruit your younger siblings into your kindness adventures; make a welcome home banner on an ordinary day; offer to was someone’s car (I know two grannies that would love their car to be vacuumed); and so on… Go and look at the website: 366 Days of Kindness that the author, Bernadette Russel.

That’s us… hope you have the most fabulous week!!!

    We’re in Capetown too so not exactly “far flung”, but I’d love to be the recipient of Book.

    Oooo I don’t think Mosbach, Germany counts as very exotic but I do love the idea of a travelling book and helping books to travel.
    Have you heard of BookCrossing?
